The place to party
With the original features and rustic charm of a 19th-century barn, The Hall Barns is the wedding reception venue of your dreams.
Whether or not you hold your wedding ceremony with us, you’re welcome to celebrate at our lovingly restored rustic barn. Make the most of our charming bar and feast in our Parlour while enjoying the beautiful views of the Leicestershire countryside as your loved ones raise a toast to the happy couple.
Our staff will be on hand to provide everything you need, including our amazing team of chefs.
Private and idyllic
When you hire the Hall Barns for your wedding reception, you’ll have exclusive access to the venue to celebrate with your loved ones.
From timber floors and exposed rafters to showers for our overnight campers and a cosy log burner, we’ve perfected every detail. Whether you’re planning to celebrate in the afternoon or evening, our combination of indoor and outdoor spaces is ideal for all-weather mingling.
The private, secluded setting is perfect for a relaxed party, and you’ll be the only guests on the site. You can also use our campsite, which is less than a minute’s walk from the Barn, or hire the self-catering Laundry Cottage, with space to rest up to eight weary heads.
TIME TO EAT
Led by our Head Chef Marc Billings, national Chef of the Year finalist, along with our team of amazingly talented chefs, your party food is guaranteed to delight your guests and provide a delicious energy source for your evening party.
Whether you design a bespoke menu or choose one of our carefully curated menus, there’s plenty to get your taste buds tingling. We can provide all types of catering, from sit-down dinners to buffets and BBQs, and with a staffed bar inside the Barn, the booze will keep flowing all night long.
Time to dance
The versatility of The Hall Barns means just about anything goes when it comes to partying.
Whether you choose to hire a live band or a DJ, the Crew Yard is perfect for busting out a few dance moves. You can opt to add in a cocktail hour and musicians to ease the transition from daytime celebrations into evening fun.
Time to sleep
Hiring the Hall Barns gives you exclusive access to our campsite for a fun and relaxed night under the stars.
If you’d prefer a few home comforts, you can hire our self-catering cottage. Just a stone’s throw from the Barn, it offers three double bedrooms and plenty of space to get ready before or after the party.
Build your big day
We know how special your wedding day is, and we’re here to provide whatever you need to make it perfect.
Along with our carefully created wedding packages, we also offer a bespoke wedding service to make sure everything is exactly as you imagined. Fancy a particular cuisine? Your own catering? Or extra time at the bar? Just let us know!
You’re welcome to bring your own flowers and decorations, but we find less is often more. The effortless rustic charm of The Hall Barns truly speaks for itself, and that’s what makes it so special.
Going to the chapel?
We’re less than a five minutes’ walk from St Andrew’s Church, making The Hall Barns the perfect reception venue to celebrate after you’ve said “I do.”
